In our household, my husband does the grocery shopping.
He loves to eat and he loves to plan meals. (We tease him because before I even down my first cup of morning coffee he’s asking what I feel like having for dinner.)
I, on the other hand, despise grocery shopping. I’m not good at planning meals and there are a million other things I’d rather do than grocery shop. So our little arrangement works out well and believe me, I know I’m fortunate.
But after talking with people associated with our cover story on the Willy Street Co-op, I think I could be persuaded to change my tune. Willy Street’s business model just makes sense: member owners with a vested interest in its success. The Co-op goes above and beyond selling groceries by supporting local and organic suppliers, and organizations and causes, in the community. In this day and age, it is almost a somewhat old-fashioned notion, but it’s resonating with consumers. Who doesn’t want to feel good about where their hard-earned money is going? If you haven’t already, you really need to check it out.
Other things to check out in this issue include a number of articles written by our loyal advertisers. I was particularly intrigued to learn about an eco-friendly dry cleaning option in the area, how homeopathy can help a variety of issues, and how to get a decent night’s sleep, something that’s becoming increasingly challenging to me the older I get, unfortunately.
Of course, those articles are just the tip of the iceberg, as they say. Our second Madison issue is packed with tons of great healthy living information and we promise more to come in the future.
